I was looking for a unique way to prepare broccoli and decided to give this a try! Florets are roasted after being tossed in olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, and minced garlic. A squeeze of lemon juice before serving seals the deal.

Ingredients

6
Original recipe yields 6 servings
The ingredient list now reflects the servings specified

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • In a large bowl, toss broccoli florets with the extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, pepper and garlic. Spread the broccoli out in an even layer on a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until florets are tender enough to pierce the stems with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove and transfer to a serving platter. Squeeze lemon juice liberally over the broccoli before serving for a refreshing, tangy finish.

Delicious! Here's a thought for all the negative-nancy types though...If you don't like salt lemon or garlic--hmmm. Maybe don't TRY a GARLIC LEMON SEA SALT dish?? Just sayin'!;o)

A subjective matter perhaps but while hubby and I both love broccoli and eat it often this was just unpleasant. Bitter and an unappealing color due to roasting this basically just made our house smell strongly of broccoli. Very disappointing--maybe we just bought a bad bunch of broccoli.

I can't quit eating these! I had no idea you could cook broccoli this way. It is SO good! Thanks! Update since some found this salty - I never use salt in any recipe (except breadmaker). These are really tasty. If you fear the lemon might be too strong use less the first time.

Broccoli fixed this way is addicting! I cut broccoli vertically and use the stalks too. Toss in bowl sprinkle w/ montreal seasoning drizzle w/ olive oil and bake in oven. You won't be able to stop eating!!! My fave way to make broccoli.

EXCELLENT!!!! I tossed the broccoli with garlic olive oil plenty of garlic (we love garlic so I doubled the amount) kosher salt pepper and a few shakes of crushed red pepper. I covered w/ foil for the 1st 10 min then removed the foil and let cook another 20 min or so tossing the broccoli occasionally. I finished it off with the squeeze of fresh lemon (we used extra). My husband and i loved this so much we made it 3 nights in a row. Make extra!!! EDIT: In the years since finding this recipe I've made this probably 100 times we love it that much. I've made it with the broccoli the recipe calls for but we've also made it with asparagus zucchini and fresh green beans. I've made it in the oven but we also found these veggies turn out fantastic on the grill (we have a grill basket which prevents little pieces from falling thru the grates) the green beans do turn out best on the grill. Its a great way to use up summer veggies and also nice to be abe to do the whole diunner on the grill in the summer and not have to turn on the oven when its hot outside.

This was really good and so easy. I steamed the broccoli in the microwave then added garlic powder (generous shake) salt pepper and juice of half a lemon. I skipped the olive oil and it was fine without. It was really delicious super fast and very healthy.

Very tasty way to cook broccoli! I thought it was delicious. The only very slight negative is that I cut the amount of salt recommended in half and my husband (who likes salt) commented that it was a little salty--although he still loved it! Next time I might cut the salt a little more. I used Kosher salt (which I think is the same as sea salt).

Followed recipe exactly and it was way too salty. I will try again using 1/2 the sea salt. Also will only roast 15 minutes as we prefer a little firmer cooked vegetable.

Excellent dish! I was skeptical on how little oil was used in the dish but I stayed with the recipe and it turned out great. My husband LOVED it! Healthy AND delicious.
